Cavernoplasty with oral mucosa graft for the surgical treatment of Peyronie's disease

Peyronie's disease is a disorder of the tunica albuginea and causes penile curvature, requiring surgical correction when the deformity impedes penetration.

Retrospective analysis of the short-term results (penile length, angle of curvature and erectile function) of treating Peyronie's disease in 10 patients through cavernoplasty with oral mucosa graft.

Essentially, the treatment included the incision of the fibrotic plaque with electrical scalpel and the subsequent coating of the cavernous defect using a patch of oral mucosa. At month 6, we measured the penile length and curvature and recorded the erectile function using the International Index of Erectile Function-5 (IIEF-5) questionnaire. Finally, the patients were asked "Would you undergo the same operation again?".

The mean age was 53. 4 years. The average and median follow-up was 22. 7 months and 24 months, respectively. The mean preoperative curvature was 68. 5° (50°-90°), the mean penile length was 11. 2cm (9-15) and the mean IIEF-5 score was 16. 1 (8-25). The mean postoperative penile length was 10. 7cm, and the mean IIEF-5 score was 18. 9. The differences between the preoperative and postoperative values were not statistically significant (P=ns). One patient developed erectile dysfunction. In all cases, the residual curvature was <20°. Nine patients (90%) stated that they would undergo the same operation.

The short-term results suggest that cavernoplasty with oral mucosa graft can be an alternative to traditional grafts for surgically correcting Peyronie's disease.
